Charter Communications has ordered more than 800 low-roof, regular-wheelbase 2015 Ford Transit vans for its technicians in 29 states, the automaker has announced.

Charter became one of the first large fleets to order the full-size Transit vans, according to Ford. Charter picked the van for its handling, safety features, and other factors, said Kathy Carrington, Charter's senior vice president of corporate services.

"Charter is excited to be adding the Ford 2015 Transit Van to our fleet,” Carrington said. “The handling, safety features, cargo space and fuel efficiency were all contributing factors to our choice and our technicians will be well equipped to serve our customers with these trucks.”

Charter picked the Transit after evaluating various models, and will use Auto Truck Group to install equipment specific to the needs of its technicians.
